Chris Bailey Returns to WKYT as Chief Meteorologist

Chris Bailey is returning to WKYT, the CBS-affiliate in Lexington, as chief meteorologist.

Bailey left WKYT in 2008 to join WSAZ, the NBC-affiliate in Charleston. His first day back at WKYT will be March 5.

“No one knows Kentucky weather like Chris Bailey,” WKYT president and general manager Wayne Martin said in a statement. “Regardless the season or what the weather has in store for us, Chris has always demonstrated a passion and dedication that is second to none.”

Bailey replaces T.G. Shuck, who announced yesterday he is leaving the station to spend more time with his family.

Self-Proclaimed Nerd Jonathan Oh Promoted to Daytime Meteorologist at WOLO

Jonathan Oh, a web producer and new media coordinator with WOLO, has been promoted to daytime meteorologist at the ABC-affiliate.

Oh, who worked as a reporter and meteorologist at crosstown rival WACH before joining WOLO, will work the station’s 6 a.m. and noon newscasts, which are set to be filmed in WOLO’s new street-level studio in downtown Columbia, SC.

“We’re delighted Jonathan will be on the air in Columbia doing weather again, this time with ABC Columbia,” said Chris Bailey, WOLO’s vice president and general manager, in announcing the move. “Jonathan is a great team player and very techno-savvy and will continue in his role as New Media Coordinator for our station.”

Oh, who describes himself as “fun, nerdy, techie” in his Twitter profile, is a media renaissance man. In addition to being a member of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association, Oh has experience producing and anchoring live streaming news coverage for WOLO.
